Pichilemu

Pichilemu is fantastic… the bus ride over here, was one of my favorite so far. There are so many trees on the road to the beach, it feels like you are lost in a never ending forest.  Nobody had any idea where we were going to stay, so we hitchhiked from the center of town […]

Santiago

Salt Flats- Day 2

Llamas, flamingos, twisters and geysers…day 2 was a long one, but I saw several things I had never seen before… Like the “Arbol de piedra.” We stayed in a hotel made of salt on day 1, and drove for several hours on day 2. Way too many! On our jouney we passed by at least […]

Salar de Uyuni – Day 1

The salt flats were great, but the best part of this trip was at night. Stargazing at the Salar is epic! Never in my life have I seen so many shooting stars…between 15-20! Incredible 😉
